Former Spice Girl Mel B revealed in an interview on Saturday that, though she had a four-year relationship with a woman, she married “a penis” and doesn’t label her sexuality.
In an interview with The Guardian, Mel B spoke about her four year relationship with Crista Parker, whose children attended the same school as Mel’s. The relationship began after her time with Eddie Murphy, who requested a paternity test for her second child, and lasted for four years.
“Well, I did have a four-year relationship with a woman. […] But I’ve definitely not been shy or been one to hold back. If I wanted to try something, I did. I had a girlfriend. So what?”
Though she didn’t go into detail about her former relationship, the X Factor judge states that she is happy with her choice to marry current husband, Stephen Belafonte.
“I’ve been very happily married for seven years to a penis. Ha ha! An amazing guy.”
She told The Guardian that her relationship with her husband is great and they can discuss other women.
“[…] me and my husband are very tight and solid. But I will be the first one to compliment a woman, to say to my husband, ‘Oh my God, look at her legs’; or ‘Doesn’t she look stunning?’ I do think women are gorgeous. Crazy – but gorgeous.
In July, former Playboy playmate Luann Lee claimed that Mel B followed her into a disabled toilet for an “intimate moment” as Mel’s husband, Belafonte, waited outside.
She told The Mirror:
“It was very passionate and sensual. She’s like a man in that way – very assertive, very determined and very wanting. I can see why they call her Scary Spice. […] She was a good kisser. Her lips are very soft and full and she has a tender touch. It was maybe a five-minute kiss and after that she started going for other areas.”
She also claimed that they wanted to continue seeing each other but couldn’t because of Mel’s husband.
In 2010, Mel told American radio host, Howard Stern, “People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who’s in my bed and that’s it… I have a huge libido and a great sex life.”
On Alan Carr: Chatty Man a few weeks ago, in response to a question about straight women becoming lesbians, Mel said: “Yeah, I was one of those for a few years.”
When asked if she was a lesbian, Mel responded, “I would not call it that. I was just one of those ladies. Now I’m happily married.”
